ENFORCERS EDGED BY COURT KINGZ, 112-99
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — Last night our Brevard County Sheriff’s Office “Enforcers” Basketball Team put on a great show at Viera High School against the world famous “Street Ball” team.
The game was close with BCSO leading by eight at half time. The crowd enjoyed the high-flying dunking and trick dribbling ability of the Court Kingz but the Enforcers continued to battle till the very end.
The final score was Court Kingz-112. BCSO-99. Corrections Deputy Carl Jenkins of BCSO set a team-record by hitting (14) 3 point shots and scoring a total of 47 points, to be named the games MVP.
The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Enforcers volunteer their time to compete against various teams throughout the year to help raise funds for various charitable organizations and many of our schools.
I would like to personally thank all of our players and coaches for their efforts and also thank the Viera High School Basketball Program and staff for allowing us to use their facility for last night’s game.
